Moisture stresses in a long hollow hygroscopic cylindrically aeolotropic circular cylinder in a state of plane strain are determined mathematically in infinite trigonometric series form. The analysis is then applied to find similar stresses in a long hollow wood pole made up of species walnut for a physically important moisture-content distribution. It is observed that the infinite sums representing the stresses converge and the stresses can be evaluated with the help of a digital computer up to any desired accuracy.
